Default Fatmat on the T15 Jimmy

Pictures ought to be self explanatory. I'm not even remotely finished but hope to be close by tomorrow evening. (got the wife helping now)

https://picasaweb.google.com/1017048...eat=directlink

I did the tailgate and now it shuts solid instead of bouncing on the first latch.

We will then move to the front of the vehicle and do the crap out of the firewall then relocate my wiring to beneath the carpet (as much as possible).

I will then use some silicone on the fatmat gaps to keep any moisture from invading my beautiful sheetmetal.

I'll be updating the pictures on picasa. If there are any mods that can either edit my post of tell me how to link to the picasa slideshow I would be grateful.

Let me know if any of you have any questions.

He probably needs to change his security settings to allow people with the direct link to view it.

Okay does this one work?

If so I think what happened is I made the post THEN gave the credentials of link which changes the address.

I figure everyone else uses fatmat type products for their audio. I am installing it for it's insulation properties (sound deadening is a bonus, so is improved audio quality) so that when we are camping in the Jimmy, our feet don't freeze off.

My hope is that the rubber will help keep the cold beneath the vehicle from cooling the cabin down as easily.

I'm also thinking if it is insulating heat out from entering via the bottom, my ac will work a little better and might also help keep exhaust heat from making my feet hot (mostly as a rider though).

It is immediately clear that it does dampen noise to a great degree. At least that is what my butt-dyno is reading out.
